Oct 18, 2022: I have contacted actors from around the region to perform a staged reading for The One Act Play That Goes Wrong. We are planning on starting rehearsals on November 9. My plan is to stage it much like a radio show with my experience during the pandemic directing those 18 old time radio shows.

In addition, I invite any businesses in the area to donate an auction item and attend our fund raiser on November 19th You can contact me at the emails below or send a donation on our go fund me page tab on this website or send them to our P.O. Box 1513, Woodinville WA. 98072.

Also, I attended AS If Theatres The Foreigner at the Kenmore Community Club last weekend and I highly recommend you making an effort to go see their show which has their final performances this coming weekend. And the Woodinville Repertory Theatre has opened Ghost Writer at the Sammamish Valley Grange Hall in Woodinville by the wine district. it is their first live show since the pandemic.

Oct 6, 2022 We are excited to plan the upcoming Gala Event on November 19th. We are reaching out to ask for any music solos or small combos to donate their performance time for part of the entertainment for the event. Also I am looking for 8 actors to perform the Staged Reading for the One Act Play that Goes Wrong.

October 3, 2022 - Been in contact with the Woodinville Grange Hall and it looks promising for a 2nd venue for our company so we can add more productions in our 2023 season. The Woodinville Repertory Theatre will be performing Ghost Writer this month at the space.

September 29, 2022 - Meeting with the Northshore Performing Arts Foundation Board at one of the local Woodinville Wineries to network for sponsorships and potential venue leads. Will update in a later entry.

September 28, 2022- We have mounted two full length plays this season and are working on fundraising to move forward into our 2023. Season, there is much to do. We have some new board members and we are working on delegating duties for our upcoming fundraiser on November 19 at 7 PM. We moved Silent Sky to February due to our financial situation and hope that with grant writing, working on sponsorships we will be able to launch into next year. Any support you can give us through our Go Fund Me Page or join us on the November 19th event it takes our community to help us reach our goals of outstanding live theatre in the Northshore Area.
